After a fairly drab first half, the game exploded to life early in the second period thanks to Eriksen’s effort.

Having seen his powerful strike parried, the Dane reacted quickest to pounce on the rebound as his deflected effort looped over Samir Handanovic.

Spurs dominated the match from that moment, only for Icardi to stun visiting fans with an incredible volley five minutes from time.

Mauricio Pochettino brought on Danny Rose for Harry Kane in a desperate bid to shore up his defence and cling onto a draw.

But another sub, Harry Winks, lost his man from a set-piece and allowed Vecino to nod home an injury-time winner for the Serie A giants.
